Our goal is to provide property owners the necessary information to help them with the development of their property as well as maintaining compatibility throughout neighborhoods. To accomplish this goal the City adopted zoning ordinances (regulations) which helps neighborhoods remain compatible and to help maintain property values.
Every home is located within a “zone” which allows a variety of land uses compatible with your neighborhood. For example, the number and types of pets which are allowed, where sheds or garages may be constructed on your property, and whether or not a home business is allowed, are all regulated by the Zoning Ordinance.
The Community Development Department can tell you what zone your property is in and what is allowed within that zone. It is also helpful to know the zoning for properties around you.
